AINUR is currently one of the most important band dedicated to Tolkien’s world and vision: their records are focused on the musical version of “The Silmarillion” by J.R.R. Tolkien.
The concept of “The Lost Tales” is focused on the earliest writings of J.R.R. Tolkien (the essence and the heart of “The Silmarillion”) and relates the journey of Eriol (a human character) that landed on the elven island of Tol Eressea and hosted for a long time by the Elves. Here he will listen to the great stories of the Ancients around the campfire, and once returned, he will spread them to the world.
“The Lost Tales” introduces an acoustic version of some of the happiest moments of AINUR’s discography set in a very unique background (the tales which Eriol is listening around the campfire on the island of Tol Eressea), although the musical texture and atmosphere is a little less bombastic than the ones you can find on the previous releases. Moreover, “The Lost Tales” includes three new songs written by Luca and Marco Catalano, Alessandro Armuschio, Vilma Collo and Roberta Malerba.
